What Are Fair Trade Products?

October is Fair Trade Month. But what is Fair Trade?

The goal of Fair Trade is to help producers in developing countries to get a fair price for their products so as to reduce poverty, provide for the ethical treatment of workers and farmers, and promote environmentally sustainable practices.

So how can you know what your buying is fair trade and not made by slaves? Here are a list of organizations that can help you make better choices when shopping.
